Product overview
Sony HDR-CX520V
  • CNET Editor rating:
    3.5 stars Very good
      Overall score: 7.6 (3.5 stars)
  • Average user rating: 4.5 stars out of 2 reviews

The Bottom Line: The geotagging capability remains mostly a novelty, but the top-notch video quality of the Sony Handycam HDR-CX500V and HDR-CX520V make them worthy options. Because internal memory is overpriced, the HDR-XR500V is the better deal of the two, though you may want to opt for a 2010 model that supports SD cards rather than Sony's Memory Stick. Read review

Specs: Exmor R CMOS, 12, Built-in flash, 13 oz, 5.2 in, Sony Handycam HDR-CX520V - Camcorder - Flash card, 12 x x Zoom lens - 5.5 mm - 60 mm - F/1.8-3.4, 2.6 in, 2.6 in

Product overview
Canon Vixia HF11
  • CNET Editor rating:
    4.0 stars Excellent
      Overall score: 8.0 (4.0 stars)
  • Average user rating: 4.0 stars out of 3 reviews

The Bottom Line: Like its sibling the HF10, Canon's flash-based Vixia HF11 delivers excellent HD video quality and performance in a tiny package. However, the HF11 delivers a bit more value for its lower price. Read review

Specs: CMOS, Built-in flash, 13.4 oz, 12 x Zoom lens - 4.8 mm - 57 mm - F/1.8-3.0, 2.9 in, 2.5 in, - Camcorder, Canon HF11 - Flash card, 5.1 in

Product overview
Panasonic PV-GS320
  • CNET Editor rating:
    3.5 stars Very good
      Overall score: 7.2 (3.5 stars)
  • Average user rating: 3.5 stars out of 20 reviews

The Bottom Line: Delivering high-quality MiniDV footage and decent still images, the Panasonic PV-GS320 should appeal to advanced amateurs searching for a tape-based camcorder. Read review

Specs: 3CCD, 0.54 megapixels, 15.9 oz, Panasonic PV-GS320 - Camcorder - Mini DV, 5.8 in, Leica 10 x x Zoom lens - 3 mm - 30 mm - F/1.8-2.8, 3.1 in, 3.3 in

Canon Vixia HF M30 Reviewed on August 5, 2010 Check prices
Product overview
Canon Vixia HF M30
  • CNET Editor rating:
    3.5 stars Very good
      Overall score: 7.5 (3.5 stars)
  • Average user rating: 3.5 stars out of 10 reviews

The Bottom Line: At its best, the Canon Vixia HF M3x series--composed of the M300, M30, M31, and M32--delivers a very good blend of video quality, features, and performance for the money, but some people may find the touch-screen interface extremely frustrating to use and the battery life painfully short. Plus, you really need to bump up to the highest bit rate quality. Of the series, the HF M300 is the best deal. Read review

Specs: CMOS, Built-in flash, 11.3 oz, 2.4 in, 4.8 in, 15 x x Zoom lens - 4.1 mm - 61.5 mm - F/1.8-3.2, 2.7 in, Canon VIXIA HF M30 - Camcorder - Flash card

Sony Handycam HDR-XR350V

Specs: Exmor R CMOS, Built-in flash, 13.8 oz, 2.3 in, Sony Handycam HDR-XR350V - Camcorder - Hard disk drive, - Flash card, 4.4 in, 12 x x Zoom lens - 2.9 mm - 34.8 mm - F/1.8-3.4, 2.6 in

The Bottom Line: The geotagging capability remains mostly a novelty, but the top-notch video quality of the Sony Handycam HDR-CX500V and HDR-CX520V make them worthy options.

Product overview
Panasonic HDC-SD1
  • CNET Editor rating:
    3.5 stars Very good
      Overall score: 7.3 (3.5 stars)
  • Average user rating: 3.5 stars out of 8 reviews

The Bottom Line: A solid SD-based camcorder, the Panasonic HDC-SD1 nevertheless suffers from a few performance issues and an annoying design. Read review

Specs: 3CCD, 1.5 megapixels, Built-in flash, 15.2 oz, 2.6 in, Panasonic HDC-SD1 - Camcorder - Flash card, Leica 12 x x Zoom lens - 4 mm - 48 mm - F/1.8-2.8, 5.4 in, 2.9 in

Panasonic HDC-HS700 Reviewed on May 28, 2010 Check prices
Product overview
Panasonic HDC-HS700
  • CNET Editor rating:
    3.5 stars Very good
      Overall score: 7.9 (3.5 stars)
  • Average user rating: 3.5 stars out of 5 reviews

The Bottom Line: The flash-based Panasonic HDC-TM700 and its hard-disk sibling, the HDC-HS700, stand out for their low-light video quality and broad set of manual controls. However, while the TM700 is very attractively priced for its class, the HS700 is not, and not worth the price premium unless you absolutely need the hard disk. Read review

Specs: MOS, Built-in, 15.9 oz, 2.6 in, Leica 12 x x Zoom lens - 3.45 mm - 41.4 mm - F/1.5-2.8, 5.4 in, - Flash card, Panasonic HDC-HS700K - Camcorder - Hard disk drive, 2.7 in

      Overall score: 8.0 (4.0 stars)
  • Average user rating: 4.0 stars out of 29 reviews

The Bottom Line: One of a pair of Canon's first flash-based camcorders, the Canon Vixia HF100, delivers excellent HD video quality and performance in a tiny package. Read review

Specs: CMOS, 13.4 oz, 12 x x Zoom lens - 4.8 mm - 57 mm - F/1.8-3.0, Canon VIXIA HF100 - Camcorder - Flash card, 2.5 in, 2.9 in, 5.1 in

  • CNET Editor rating:
    4.0 stars Excellent
      Overall score: 8.0 (4.0 stars)
  • Average user rating: 4.0 stars out of 8 reviews

The Bottom Line: As the flash-memory-based equivalent of the HDR-SR11, the Sony Handycam HDR-CX12 serves up the same pleasing performance and quality as its hard-drive cousin. Read review

Specs: ClearVid CMOS, Built-in flash, 15.9 oz, Carl Zeiss 12 x x Zoom lens - 5.9 mm - 58.8 mm - F/1.8-3.1, Sony Handycam HDR-CX12 - Camcorder - Flash card, 3 in, 3.3 in, 5.4 in

  • CNET Editor rating:

      Overall score: 0.0 (0.0 stars)
  • Average user rating: 2.5 stars out of 32 reviews

Specs: CCD, 12 oz, 4.6 in, 2.8 in, Panasonic SDR-H40 - Camcorder - Hard disk drive, 42 x x Zoom lens - 1.8 mm - 75.6 mm - F/1.9-4.3, 2.6 in

Sony Handycam HDR-CX160 (Black) Reviewed on May 9, 2011 Check prices
Product overview
Sony Handycam HDR-CX160 (Black)
  • CNET Editor rating:
    3.0 stars Good
      Overall score: 6.8 (3.0 stars)
  • Average user rating: 3.0 stars out of 6 reviews

The Bottom Line: Typical for their price class, the no-frills Sony Handycam HDR-CX130, CX160, and XR160 produce generally subpar HD video, but if you're not picky you'll probably be fine. The CX130 is the best buy of the three, as long as you go cheap on the memory card. Read review

Specs: Exmor R CMOS, 8.8 oz, 30 x x Zoom lens - 2.1 mm - 63 mm - F/1.8-3.4, 2.2 in, 2.1 in, Sony Handycam HDR-CX160 - Camcorder - Flash card, 4.5 in

Panasonic HDC-TM900 Reviewed on November 9, 2011 Check prices
Product overview
Panasonic HDC-TM900
  • CNET Editor rating:
    4.0 stars Excellent
      Overall score: 8.0 (4.0 stars)
  • Average user rating: 5.0 stars out of 1 review

The Bottom Line: Panasonic's trio of prosumer camcorders, the hard-disk-based HDC-HS900 and flash-based TM900 and SD800, deliver generally excellent video quality and provide the full set of manual controls and features advanced users want. But you have to be willing to baby the white balance a bit. The TM900 is my top pick of the three for its EVF, but if you're on a tight budget the SD800 should suit just fine. Read review

Specs: 3MOS, Built-in flash, 13.9 oz, 5.7 in, Leica 12 x x Zoom lens - 3.45 mm - 41.4 mm - F/1.5-2.8, 2.8 in, 2.6 in, Panasonic HDC-TM900 - Camcorder - Flash card

Canon Vixia HF S100
  • CNET Editor rating:
    4.0 stars Excellent
      Overall score: 8.0 (4.0 stars)
  • Average user rating: 4.0 stars out of 13 reviews

The Bottom Line: An excellent flash-based prosumer HD camcorder, you may nevertheless pass on the Canon Vixia HF S100 because it lacks an eye-level viewfinder. It's probably a better buy than the identical--but more expensive, because it has 32GB built-in memory--Vixia HF S10. Read review

Specs: CMOS, Pop-up flash, 15.9 oz, Canon VIXIA HF S100 - Camcorder - Flash card, 2.7 in, 10 x x Zoom lens - 6.4 mm - 64 mm - F/1.8-3.0, 5.4 in, 2.8 in

  • CNET Editor rating:

      Overall score: 6.6 (3.0 stars)
  • Average user rating: 3.0 stars out of 7 reviews

The Bottom Line: The Sony Handycam DCR-DVD650 offers an all-in-one, on-the-go way to capture standard-def video and burn it to a DVD, but hard-disk-drive and flash-memory models are otherwise a better option. Read review
